Sardis – Rebuke

Wake up! Strengthen what little remains, for even what is left is almost dead. I find that your actions do not meet the requirements of My God. Revelation 3:2 NLT

Why does Jesus tell them to “wake up!”  The Sardis church no longer recognized what sin was.  They no longer had the strength to protest. They were lifeless.  Jesus says “Wake Up”.  Make use of what strength you have left.  If we don’t exercise our bodies, our muscles will lose strength.

Why should we watch?

Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 NLT 

Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!” Matthew 26:41 NLT 

“So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming. Matthew 24:42 NLT 

We are always asking God for strength, comfort, support, etc.  We need to give something in return.  We need to be faithful, we need to share His love with others, we need to give Him our loyalty and service.
